After a disappointing NFL Week 4 Monday Night loss to the rival Kansas City Chiefs, the Denver Broncos looks to rebound with a win and cover on the road against the New York Jets. Will Denver prove better than the Jets? Or, will the Jets add another loss to Denver’s record?

Why are the Broncos a good bet at +2?
The Broncos’ defense should have no trouble confusing Jets’ rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. Darnold’s a top rookie QB, but he doesn’t have much chance against a Denver D that’s played remarkably well considering how bad the Broncos’ offense is. Often, the Broncos’ offense has left the Denver defense with too little field to defend.
When it comes to Jets versus Broncos, NYJ’s offensive line should have trouble protecting Darnold. He’ll be a great quarterback eventually. Right now, Darnold makes mistakes when defenses pressure him.

Why are the Jets a good bet at -2?
The Jets’ defense should have no trouble stopping Denver’s offense. Although the Broncos have a big edge with their defense versus the Jets’ offense, the Jets’ defense has a big edge over the Broncos’ offense.
Denver quarterback Case Keenum doesn’t appear to be on the same page as his wide receivers. Denver rushes the ball well, but when Keenum must throw it, he often fails to make the right read. Keenum couldn’t take advantage of one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL on Monday night. How will he take advantage of a decent Jets’ pass defense?

Final NFL Betting Analysis for Broncos at Jets
Even though the Chiefs rushed for 142 yards and Patrick Mahomes threw for 304 yards and a TD, Denver had plenty of chances to stop the Chiefs final drive on Monday night. They didn’t because Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL. Darnold’s still learning.
It’s hard to see Denver losing 3 games in a row as it is. Denver’s defense is too good to let Darnold beat it while the Broncos know that if they played against any other quarterback instead of Mahomes, they’d have won on Monday night.
